New RJ45 MiniZap from Russ Andrews

Russ Andrews is introducing the RJ45 MiniZap, the latest in the company’s range of filters designed to enhance the performance of computer-based audio systems through high-frequency noise reduction.

The company says: “Plugged into a spare RJ45 socket on a router or network switch or TV, streamer or DAC, this newly developed class of filter is a modified Zobel Network, which has been designed to absorb and dissipate RF and EMI from spikes induced from the AC supply. These spikes are often caused by devices such as wireless networks, which makes the MiniZap’s use in streaming audio-based systems particularly relevant. The RJ45 MiniZap works at RF and super high frequencies and has the effect of reducing the impact of these unwanted noise spikes on the audio bandwidth, without affecting the audio frequencies themselves. The audible effect is a lowering of the noise floor, greater dynamics and a calmer, more relaxed sound.”

Within the custom-designed rear housing, four MiniZap filters are fitted, which are connected to a Telegartner locking RJ45 plug for a: “robust and effective” connection to the socket. The RJ45 MiniZap comes with a 25-year warranty and is also subject to the company’s standard 60-day, money-back guarantee.

Available to buy now for £289, you can find out more about the RJ45 MiniZap here.
